Microsoft updating Skydrive, no longer can sync user-defined folders
Dear Microsoft: Please don't take away my Live Mesh | Microsoft - CNET News
The beauty of Live Mesh, though, is that you can sync any folder anywhere on your hard drive without having to move or copy it to a specific location. You simply tell Live Mesh which folders to keep in sync on each PC, and it does the rest.
The new SkyDrive will sync your files. But unlike Live Mesh, it won't sync specific folders from anywhere on your PC.
Instead, it creates a folder on your PC called SkyDrive. Any subfolder or file you wish to sync has to be moved to that specific location. So what was once an automated process now becomes a manual and laborious task. It also can easily create problems for applications that want to store content in your Documents folder, for example.

I was under the impression you could put the SkyDrive anywhere you wanted it. I was planning to put it on my data drive, which is where my documents and user created files are anyway. I point my libraries to these folders, so anything I would want synced, I could store, by default, in SkyDrive.
